I am the first to agree with the daily revisions on maps, and I really do apologize. I am testing so many things on this map that I am loading it an trying different approaches all the time. Only fatal flaws, like territorial access would have me post a revision and that was the case here. I thought I had checked everything twice, but misread the events - my bad. But in all actuality, the map will work and isn't impossible, just more difficult and different than what I want it to be.
Part of this is that I am working on campaign maps, but as scenarios first for testing. So I am trying to hold back a few things until the end in order to make it slightly different as a campaign. Now, all the things that I was holding back on are in the map, with the exception that when you take over the GT, your credit rating will increase.
One of the problems I am running into is that I am still testing out the cargo system, and as you can imagine, it takes a lot of time, and it has to be on a playable map. I can't complete a map until I have other things worked out, and so it adds to the length of time it is taking. Can't get others to help me until I get a playable map. So around in circles we go.
Usually I won't upload a mpa until I have played it all the way through and achieved gold on expert level. But for now, I am doing the best I can with what I've got.
The 1.05 exe will keep working until the beta version. The changes that affect things are the campaigns mostly. I'll let you know when it is no longer possible to use the 1.05 exe.
One thing I want to point out is that the industry display is at the TOP of my list. It is my first priority right now and I haven't been able to figure out how to fix it. I haven't stopped trying, and will not stop until I figure something out. If it really comes down to it, I may just end up splitting some industries into two (or 3 for that matter), but that is a last resort.
So as it stands, I apologize once more for having had to make some changes to the map. When I tested the terriroty access the first time, it worked under the conditions for the approach I was taking, but the next time using a different approach things didn't work right. (and just think...I only have 14 more maps to make.
PS: I've strated this scenario and played it for at least 5 years about 35 to 40 times now. And....despite this being the second scenario I have written on this map, I have never really like it. The geography is all wrong, and the map is too small for the area covered. As far as the cities on the map in Ontario and Quebec, I have been to every one of them except for the northern towns, so I'm familiar with the geography and the rail lines in real life. But, it would take me too long to make a new map, so I am going with what's available.
